MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Oxetacaine is a topical anaesthetic, which effectively relieves pain when applied to the lining of the mouth and food pipe. The antacids neutralize stomach acid and prevent further irritation of the food pipe. Antacid also thickens the liquid to help carry the oxetacaine and coat the food pipe. Alumunium Hydroxide acts on the hydrochloric acid in the stomach by neutralization, forming Aluminium Chloride salt and water. Magnesium Hydroxide increases peristaltic activity causing osmotic retention of fluids, thus resulting in bowel evacuation. It also reduces stomach acid by reacting with hydrochloric acid to form Magnesium Chloride.
 
INDICATIONS:
It is used in gastrointestinal disorders manifested with the hyperacidity and increased gas production. May be administered as monotherapy or in combinations for the treatment of gastro-oesophagitis reflux, chronic diarrhea, non-ulcer dyspepsia.
 
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
In patients with the renal insufficiency because of the risk of increase of magnesium and aluminium serum concentration due to the decreased excretion through the kidneys. Do not use in patients allergic to magnesium and aluminium.
 
SIDE EFFECTS:

PRECAUTIONS & WARNING:
Extensive use of aluminum-containing antacids may cause hypophosphatemia (low phosphate levels in the blood), which in severe cases could lead to muscle weakness, anorexia, and osteomalacia (softening of the bones due to defective bone mineralization).
